“Beautiful Walking Country”
Reviewed 28 December 2012

As good as it gets in England with something for all ages and abilities. Adjacent to the Fernilee car park you can access a flat trail which skirts the reservoir and the more adventurous can continue into the Peak District National Park where the options for exploring are endless.

“worth a visir”
Reviewed 19 December 2012

This area is good for walking, it has moors, woods and the river. It also has the ruins of Errwood Hall, which was destroyed when Errwood Reservoir was built.

“Lovely Place”
Reviewed 18 November 2012

I should really write a bad review to put people off and then I could keep this place all to myself.
Stunning scenery, well marked woodland and moorland paths/routes. Some circular with variying degrees of difficulty and distance. Make sure you visit the ruins of Errwood Hall, the families grave yard and woodland shrine. A couple of car parking areas and picnic benches for enjoying the views as you eat. It does get very, very busy in the summer and at weekends. Arrive early or midweek. Take care on roads when walking as mountain bikers zoom through at quite a pace. Lots of dog walkers. There is a sailing club too so traffic can be heavy. There are information boards though sadley they tend to get vandalised. Bring a picnic but no naked flames. No toilet facilites anymore. Again, thanks to vandals.
